The season leading up to Christmas is a light-filled, festive time in Paris that can offer the ideal backdrop for a romantic vacation or a memorable holiday season with the entire family, kids included. Many people never venture to plan a trip here at this time of year, assuming it’s cold, dark, and grim. But as we’ve pointed out many times elsewhere, December can be one of the most pleasant times to visit, and if you’re not opposed to leaving home for the holidays, a family trip to Paris can be incredibly memorable.
If you want to get a general outlook of the city as a whole, a tour visiting the Louvre Museum, the Seine River Cruise and the Eiffel Tower is the best option. This smart tour gets you to the best of the city in a single day. No senseless dawdling or getting lost. Skip past the lines and into the Louvre for the highlights, then take a Seine river cruise to the front door of the Eiffel Tower. From high a top Restaurant 58 you can see forever. But you’re not done yet — visit Notre Dame Cathedral on the picturesque Île de la Cité. Everything is included: entrance fees, lunch, and two river cruises.
If you’re visiting town around the holidays and don’t have access to a kitchen or catering, you may want to book a special holiday meal.
But with most of the city’s restaurants likely to be booked full and many closed on and around Christmas day, your best bet is to try and reserve ahead for lunch or dinner on Christmas Eve.
Whatever your spiritual beliefs and persuasions, visiting Notre Dame Cathedral for the Christmas eve service can be a memorable and peaceful occasion. The service, which often includes a stirring and inspirational midnight choir, is open to everyone. However, if a mass isn’t your cup of tea, you can still enjoy taking in the sublime details of some of the most beautiful churches and chapels in Paris, from the light-filled Sainte-Chapelle to the mysterious, early gothic Abbaye St-Germain.
